StowFS doesn't create links, it uses unionfs. The difference of both is almost simple, since with links you can remove stow and everything will keep working. With StowFS you need to have stowfs running to get things working (this "curiously" create a bootstrap problem

2006/2/5, Alfred M. Szmidt <ams@gnu.org>:
   How about a daemon (or service, or translator, or whatever) that
   would monitor the "/Programs" directory where the new programs are
   installed. And when that daemon sees a new program it automagicaly
   does a "ln -s" for binaries, includes, libraries, etc.

That is exactly what stowfs does, only that the links in /bin don't
really exist, and are updated on the fly.
